To Mr. BACON, at his GENUINE MEDICINE WARE- HOUSE, No. 150, Oxford- street, London. >' No, 86, Charlotte- street, Rathbone- Place. ( COPY.) A SCORBUTIC HUMOUR spread itself all over my back and sides. The itching and smarting were intolerable, and of S0 inveterate a nature, as resisted the efforts of the Faculty ; rendered ineffectual a va- riety of advertised Medicines, and discovered Remedies; therefore I intended, as my last expedient, to try the effeCt of Salt Water, when a friend informed me, that he had been affliCted with a similar complaint, and, after using several expensive Medicines, and the Salt Water had also failed, he was cured by a few Eighteen- penny Bottles of Mr. DEER- ING's ANTISCORBUTIC DROPS.— I consented to try them, and Five Bottles have, beyond expedition, performed a PERFECT CURE. Humanity to the Scorbutic induces me to send you this, my case, for publication, as I verily believe Mr. Deering's Drops to be the most efficacious and sovereign Remedy for Scortutic Complaints ever yet pre- pared. « I am, Sir, yours, & c.

I LEAKE's PATENT PILLS, To THOMAS TAYLOR, SURGEON, No. 9, New Bridge- Street, London. SIR, Dublin, March 10, 1793. Think it is but doing justice to the memory of Mr. LEAKE, to. communicate the following- very extraordinary Cure performed by his PILULA SALUTA- RIA. A man who has lived with me for some years, in the ca- pacity of a Gardner, was about a twelvemonth ago infected' with the Venereal Disease, the consequence ot which was a virulent Gonorrhoea; upon this he immediately applied to one of those, who, without anv real knowledge of the Dis- ease, promised an immediate cure; the improper treatment of this man brought on a Gleet, Buboes in the Groin, and at length, what was at first a slight Clap, degenerated into a confirmed Lues; corroding Ulcers gradually began to cover his Body, and had crept to the cartilage of his Nose, which they Were destroying very fast, when the poor fellow, find- ing disguise no longer possible, with tears in his eyes con- fessed to me the whole affair As he had been some a most valuable servant, I procured him all the assistance I was able. After a week's attendance, the Faculty declared his Case desperate. I had heard much of vour Pilula Salutaria, in this case 1 knew their effects might be beneficial, and could not be dangerous— I therefore sent for some, and it is no less true than surprising, that they actually in less than a month effected a perfect Cure. I write this at the instigation of John Gordon ( that is the man's name) whose gratitude is unbounded. As a friend of mine is coming to London, 1 desired him to leave this at your House. I remain, SIR, Your humble Servant, THOMAS BISHOP. P. S, If through the medium of the Public Prints, you chuse to communicate this instance of the efficacy of Leake's Pills, you are at liberty to do so.

T A CERTAIN CURE FOR CORNS. INFALLIBLE GERMAN CORN PLASTER. HE PROPRIETOR of this most excellent and innocent REMEDY is so certain of its efficacy, l aving never failed in a variety of Cases, agrees, if it does not eradicate the CORNS, Root and Branch, to return tbc money; and be may add with pride, that this PLASTER has greatly the advantage of the numberless inefficacious ad- vertised 0intMENTs, SALVES, & c. as many hundreds of afflicted persons can testify, among whom are some of the First Characters in this Kingdom. This is the celebrated Plaster that gained so much reputa- tion in Germany ; and has been sold upwards of fifty years throughout all parts, of England with the most uncommon success. Price is i^ d. the Box, duty included, and printed Directions scaled up with it. Sold in London, Wholesale, Retail, and for Exportation, at Mr. AXTELL's Medicinal Warehouse, finch- lane, near the Royal Exchange, Cornhill : Also Retail, by special ap- pointment of the Proprietor, at Southern's, No. 27, St James's- street; Catermoul's, No. 376, Oxford- street; Day's Tavistock- street ; Bacon's Patent Medicine Shop, Oxford Road; and at all the principal Medicine Venders in the Country. TO THE CONSUMPTIVE. A CASE of REAL CONSEQUENCE, ATTESTED before the Right Hon. the LORD MAYOR. FOR two years and a half I have been severely afflicted with a violent Cough, shortness of Breath, and profuse Night Sweats, during which time I was under the carc of an eminent Apothecary at the West- end of the Town, but finding only a temporary relief from Medicine, my com- plaint returning with increased violence, and about the latter end of August last, I was quite laid up, so that I was obliged to throw myself on a Benefit Club, held at the- Scotch Arms, Bedford- bury, from which I received a subsistence for sixteen weeks. I was at this time in such a state, that every one who knew me, thought I was so far advanced in a Consumption, that my recovery was impossible. In that state I was advised to try THOMAS'S TOLU ESSENCE; from the first bottle I found a considerable relief, and by continuing its use, and following the given directions, I am now happv thus pub- licly to dcelarc, that I am perfectly recovered, and able to fol- low my business without any inconvenience. ALEXANDER GRANT. Sworn before me at the Mansion- House, London, 5th Feb. 1793, JAMES SANDERSON, Mayor. I the undersigned was Steward of the Scotch Arms Benefit Club, at the time Alexander Grant was ill, and visiting him constantly 0nce a week, I thought him to all appearance in a deep decline; 1 also know that what is recited above is strictly true. JAMES SANDERSON. Witness also, Alexander Laing, a Member of the Club. Prepared only by the Proprietor, J. THOMAS, Apothecary and Man- Midwife, St. Martin's- street, Leicester- square.

HOUSE OF LORDS. THURSDAY, JUNE IJ. DUDLEY CANAL BILL. THE Order of the Day was the Report of the Dudley Canal Bill, which Lord CATHCART introduced, by a variety of observations 011 the different clauses of the Bill. It was one of the most iniquitous, his Lordship said, that ever came before Parliament; it violated private property, and was contradic- tory in several of its clauses. Evidence had not been offered in the Committee upon those facts which had been assumed as true; and it remained for the House to examine the allega- tions which had been made, without proof; and after a long and elaborate investigation of the whole of the Bill, his Lordship moved, that the Bill be re- committed. Lord COVENTRY opposed the Motion The different clauses, he said, had been de- bated in the Committee, and had been carried by a great majority. Lord PORTCHESTER opposed the Bill in a long and very able Speech. He contended, that so far from being of public utility, it was the most shameful violation of private property ; and all those persons who had voted for the Bill in the Committee were interested in its success. So far from being an advantage to the Public, it could only be so to some private Adventurers. He therefore warmly supported the Motion made by Lord CATHCART. Lord AYLESFORD supported the Motion; and observed, that the Bill, from the beginning to the end, was the most absurd that ever was brought before the House. Lord LAUDERDALE entered into a long defence of the Bill. He said, that the people of the Country whom it more particularly con- cerned, were supposed not to be judges of their own affairs. His Lordship argued, that the Bill had been fully canvassed, and was allowed to be of the greatest utility. Lord KING supported the Bill. He said, hi allowing for the numbers interested in the Bill, there were two to one at least in its favour. Lord THURLOW, in a very able speech, op- posed the Bill. He considered it as calculated to serve the purposes of some individuals, at the expence of the Public. He asked, what was the public utility to be obtained by it, if the Towns of Birmingham and Worcester were not to be benefited ? It was a fraudulent transaction " from first to last, and such as, for the sake of com- mon sense, of their own honour, and of justice, they ought not to sanction by their authority. The BISHOP of ST. DAVID's also opposed the Bill. He considered the clause that com- pelled Proprietors to accept of a certain com- position for their property, as unjust and unlaw- ful. Where the public good demanded such a sacrifice, it must be submitted to; but where it could be procured without it, it was ever to be avoided. After having put this matter into a very striking point of view, his Lordship supported the Motion. The House divided, when there were For the Motion, - 12 Against it, - - 18 Majority, - 6 The Bill was then ordered to be read a third time to- morrow. Lord PORTCHESTER moved, that Counsel should be heard for the Petitioners 011 the third reading of the Bill; which was negatived. Lord CATHCART then moved several amendments to different clauses; which were rejected ; after which The House adjourned. The Eighth Edition, Octavo, price 2s. 6d. sewed. The Public are respectfully informed, that Mr. SPILSBURY'S TREATISE on the Scurvy, Gout, Diet, and Remedy, illustrated with above 100 Cases, which has been delayed by an Accident, is now ready to be delivered at G. Wilkie's, Bookseller, Pater- noster- row, and at E. New- bery's, the corner of St. Paul's, London. To add any Eulogium to a Work which has gone through so many Impressions is needless, yet we cannot but observe, that the present Edition is compiled with rather more care and neatness than have been observed on former occasions.—- Mr. Spilsbury's Antiscorbutic Drops, as usual, to be had as above; and at the Dispensary, Soho square, in bottles of $ s. and il. 2s. each, with the Treatise. / m THEATRICAL REGISTER.

LETTERS from Estreux, the Head Quarters of his Royal Highness the DUKE of YORK before Valencienna, of the date of the nth, inform us, that on the following night, the 12th, the Trenches were to be opened. If the Garrison attempted to annoy our Men in them,' it was determined to bombard the Town. Bets were laid in the British Army, that our Troops would be in the Town by Sunday even- ing. It seemed however the general opinion, that the place must fall by the end of the month. The Combined Force under the command of the HEREDITARY PRINCE of ORANGE has made itself master of the Post of Lannoy, in the vicinity of lisle. This completes the communication of the Cordon of the Allied Armies. Engineers were expeCted from Holland to strengthen the Fortifications. By a Letter from Nevis, received in Town yesterday, dated May 7, we understand that a Massacre of all the Aristrocrats in Guadaloupe was intended on the 21st of April last; but, owing to the eagerness of the more blood, thirsty part of the Assassins, the scheme was • rather prematurely carried into execution on the 2oth, and the far greater part of the intended victims escaped : but we have to . announce with sorrow, that the following Families were in- humanly butchered : Madame VERMONT the elder, Madame VER- MONT the younger, and two Children; Madame MEYENCOULT ; Madame ROUPELLE the elder, Madame RoupELLE the younger, an infant Child, and two Messrs. ROUPELLE; Monsieur GON- DREAURT, and three Daughters Just arrived from France, from 11 to 18 years of age; Monsieur and Madame BRINDEAU. Fortunately the alarm being thus given in time, the sanguinary purposes of these Fiends were in a great measure defeated, by numbers of respeCtable Families having quitted the Island on the first alarm Many of these unfortunate Families were at St. Bartholomew's in the beginning of May, in the most deplorable state of distress. By Letters dated the 10th of May from St. Kitt's, we are informed, that the French ships La Ferme of 74 guns, Calypso of 32, and a Cutter of 10 guns, under the White Flag of France, had actually joined Admiral GARDNER at Bar- badoes, who was manning them with British Sea- men. On the 20th of last month, twenty sail of Spanish Ships of the Line, besides Frigates, See. were at the Island of St. Pietro, near Sardinia. PORTSMOUTH, JUNE 13. THIS morning arrived the Cumberland, of 74 guns, Rear Admiral MACBRIDE, from the Downs, with the following outward- bound East Indiamen under her convoy, viz. Warren Hastings, Capt LEIGH. Henry Dundas, Capt. M'NAB. Deptford, Capt. GERRARD. Northumberland, Capt. . Kent, • Capt. HARDING. The Assistance, of 50 guns, Hon. A. K. LEGGE, this forenoon arrived with a convoy from the Downs. PLYMOUTH, JUNE 12. ARRIVED last night a Spanish brigantine called the l'Abebido, Captain du TUAM, from Bilboa, last from Falmouth, having 0n board sixty French Emigrants, with whom she is bound to Portsmouth, where it is said cloathing, See. is provided for them, and from whence they will proceed to Ostend to join the Emigrant Army. Arrived the Sprightly Cutter, Lieut. RAWE, Commander, from a cruize in the Channel. A large Fleet of Merchantmen passed this Port early this morning to the Westward, under convoy of a Sloop of War and Cutter. DOVER, JUNE 13. YESTERDAY morning, at eight o'clock, His MAJESTY and the PRINCESSES ROYAL and Au- SUSTA, attended by Lady HOWE, Major PRICK, and Mr. VILLIERs, went to St. George's Chapel, Windsor, to Prayers. THEIR MAJESTIES and five of the PRINCESSES, with a numerous Suite, went afterwards to Ascot Races. Yesterday His Royal Highness the PRINCE of WALES breakfasted with THEIR MAJESTIES and PRINCESSES at Windsor Lodge. PRINCESS SOPHIA continues much indisposed. This day, at noon, the KING came from Windsor- Lodge to St. James's, where His MA- JESTY held a Levee for the Cabinet and Foreign Ministers; and after the Levee the KING held a Council on private business. ON Tuesday the ROYAL FAMILY will come from Windsor- Lodge to the QUEEN'S House. The reports which have lately been spread concerning the ROYAL FAMILY going to Wey- mouth, are unfounded. The Duke of PORTLAND had an interview yes- terday with Mr. PITT, at his house in Downing- street. The Duke of GRAFTON appeared at the Levee on Wednesday last, for the first time these twelve years. We hear that a Treaty of Marriage is con- cluded, and will shortly take place, between the HON. Miss HAWKE, eldest daughter of the Right Hon. Lord HAWKE, and Mr. ESTWICK, the ELDEST son of SAMUEL ESTWICK, Esq. Member for the Borough of Westbury. THIS morning sailed His Majesty's Packet Boats the Dispatch, Capt. OSBORNE, with Mails and a Messenger; and the Carteret, Capt. HAM- MOND, with Emigrants, for Ostend ; and the Courier, Capt. BOYTON, arrived from that place with Mail and Passengers. It was currently reported, that General Du- MOURIER came over incog, in the Packet Boat of this morning, but 0n enquiry, find it not true. How the report arose, I cannot tell, as the Gen- tleman pointed out, no way resembled the Ge- neral. The Armies remain nearly in the same state as they have done for some days, HARWICH, JUNE 13. THE Princess Augusta Packet, PHILIP DEANE, jun. arrived from holland with the Mail and Pas sengers. We understand that General TOYS is appoint- ed to command the three Regiments of Militia that are to be encamped near this place. The late gallant Action between the Venus, Capt. JONATHAN FAULKNOR, and the French fri- gate, being the first Engagement this War, we trust that many of the Officers will meet with that preferment which merit and bravery so Justly deserve. One of the Midshipmen, Mr. WOLFE, having lost his arm during the Engagement, was below in the Cockpit having, it dressed at the time the French Ensign was shot away ; and when the British Tars gave three huzzas, Mr. WOLFE sup posing the french frigate had struck her Co- lours, immediately waved the stump of his wounded arm, joining with the brave Sailors in giving three cheers. Surely we may almost deem him a second WOLFE in resolution and un- daunted bravery. The Venus had twenty men short of her com- plement, and no Marines on board. The sum already reported by the Committee to be subscribed for Fox, is forty- four thou- sand pounds, for which their Graces the Dukes of DEVONSHIRE and BEDFORD are said to have granted him an Annuity at the rate of eleven years purchase, which gives Mr. Fox two thou sand pounds per year.. Twenty thousand pounds are to be allotted for debts, which are rather short of that sum. Five hundred per year, in case of survivorship, to a favourite Female Domestic, and the same Annuity, to a Natural Son. Several Friends of the Party having objected to subscriptions being drawn into a precedent, we hear it is resolved, that should any of them be broken down in future, the Subscriptions are not to exceed the profits of a Benefit Play, or the produce of a Begging Box in the Club- rooms. The late Fracas amongst the Members of the National Convention, is an irrefragable proof of the impolicy of Mr. Fox's advice in respeCt to negotiating for Peace with that Body. Had we obtained it through that medium, the successive Government of France would very justly consi- der us the Allies of Usurpers, and as such wage War against us; whilst we, sullied in our Na- tional Honour and Magnanimity, would be obliged to combat them without a single Alliance in our favour. Yet such was the advice of a man whose friends have lately RESOLVED, " That his Councils had no other object in view but the interests of the Public." To the honour of the Congregation at the Octagon Chapel, Bath, upwards of one hundred pounds was collected last Sunday, for the relief of the French Emigrants. FRANKFORT, JUNE 7, WHEN - the Combined Troops before Mentz were firing a feu- de- joie on the 19th of May, to celebrate the Victory obtained by the Combined Powers near Valenciennes, Lieutenant - General Count Von KALKREUTH sent information of this event to the Commandant of Mentz, who soon after sent a Trumpeter to, beg a Conference at our advanced- posts. The Officers who had been dispatched thither found Lieut. Col. MARiGNY of the Chasseurs, and the Commandant of the French advanced posts, ready to receive them. M. de MARIGNY apo- logized in a polite manner for his advanced posts, who had, from ignorance, advanced too far during the feu- de- joie, having received too late notice of the transaction. The French at Cassel relieve their Troops at Costheim every morning at one o'clock, with 1500 men. But the Detachments refuse to go to this post, and must be drawn by ballot. On the 4th instant, the Prussians on the Heights of Hockheim fired- with 24 pounders 0n two of the Enemy's ammunition waggons, laden with provisions, and killed six horses. The French instantly skinned the horses, and dragged the flesh to Costheim, where they poured hot water upon them, and drank it for broth. On the night of the 4th and 5th inst. a brisk cannonade took place in the District of Hockheim, followed by a brisk discharge of musquetry.— The French were sending three barges with provisions to the little Island which they possess on this side of the Rhine. — The fir- ing- lasted the whole day, and the Prussians had the good fortune to dislodge the French from a plain on the Rhine, in which they con- cealed themselves in holes under ground. The loss was very considerable on both sides, and the killed and wounded remain on the plain without either the Allies or the Enemy's daring to take possession of it. They are now in possession of only one plain, which borders on the Rhine. At five o'clock in the evening of the 5th, the cannonade recommenced on both sides of the Rhine, as the French were sending off three large barges with provisions r one of the barges was sunk, and the crew drowned. Severat Prussian ammunition waggons were blown up last night near the battery on the Rhine point, which accident has been attended by the loss of a great many lives. The Polish Deputies of the three Palatinates, who have reached this City to compliment Hrs PRUSSIAN MAJESTY, have not yet had an audi- ence, not having all been assembled till this day. The Protestant Deputies have been here for some time, but the Polish Deputies did not reach us till this morning. There are besides these, Ecclesiastical Deputies of the Chapters. It is said that the Court of Vienna will de- mand the Palatinates of Cracow, Sendomiria, and Lublin. On the 30th, the French at Landau made another fruitless effort to penetrate towards Spires. For the three days last past, a heavy fire has been kept up 011 Mentz, and is persevered in vi- gorously at this moment. The French in the out- posts of that City have had a great number of men killed, at the extremity of a little Island named Kopf, projecting towards Gustavusburg. The Palatinate Contingent is towards tha side, in a very dangerous position. The Imperialists have opened several trenches near Weissenau ; and several Imperial Regiments will join the Count WURMSEE. at Rastall. It is vaguely reported, that the French Army of Weissernbourg has established itself higher up in Alsace, leaving a strong Garrison in Landau. It is said by some, that this measure has been caused by the disturbances of Paris, Brittany, Bordeaux, lyons, and Marseilles. Others ascribe it to a dread that General WURMSER will force his passage over the Rhine towards Stollhosen— And others, lastly, that it is merely a feint.- By Letters from Philadelphia we learn, that the greatest distress prevails in that City. Specie has disappeared, and in consequence of Bills being returned from this Country, many failures were expected. Lord AUCKLAND is much indebted to Earl STANHOPE for giving him so early an opportunity not only of speaking in the House of Peers, but of having those transactions brought forward which have, raised his Diplomatic Character in the eyes of Europe, WARSAW, MAY BY virtue of the KING'S Universal, the Petty Diets were holden the day before yesterday, snd no disturbance had, to our knowledge, taken place. Messrs. KLICKE and BIELANSKI have been elefted Nuncios for this Metropolis. General KRETSCHETNIKOW, who commands the Prussian Troops in the dismembered Polish Provinces, died a few days ago. OSTEND, JUNE 8. OUR apprehensions with regard to the safety of this place, are in a great degree removed. The departure of the gallant Lieut. BOUCHER, of the Navy, occasioned universal regret. His attention to his professional duty rendered him formidable to the Enemies of Britain ; and his agreeable manners secured him the friendship and good wishes of all the inhabitants of Ostend, who regret his absence, and anxiously desire his return to this station. Captain FRASER, of the Savage, now com- mands, and is respected by all descriptions of people. COURT OF KING's BENCH. FRIDAY, JUNE 14, AT half past ten o'clock, Mr. FROST was brought up to receive Judgment, upon which Mr. ERSKINE addressed the Bench, in mitigation of punishment. Mr. ERSKINE'S speech was an abridgement of his Address to the Jury On his Trial; and he hoped the Bench would' think a very slight punishment sufficient. The ATTORNEY- GENERAL also addressed the Bench in a short and moderate speech. He said he had not pressed the Jury for a Verdict against FROST, unless they found the words had been spoken advisedly and seditiously. Mr. FROST, besides the general Allegiance he owed to His MAJESTY, had taken a particular Oath of Allegiance to practice in the Courts of Law as an Attorney : he considered this as a very great aggravation of the crime. The ATTORNEY GE- NERAL said, that their Lordships would award such punishment as their duty to their Sovereign and their Country required. Mr. FROST was remanded till the fast day of Term, when he will be brought up to receive Sentence. On a final arrangement between the Lords of the Admiralty and the Spanish Minister, every part of the Specie, Sec. Sic. which was recap-, tured by the Phaeton on board the Spanish Re- gister Ship and the Dumourier Privateer, will be given up to the Spaniards.— One of the grounds on which it has been given up, is, we understand, the conduct of the Spanish Government at the commencement of the late War, before that Power was leagued against England, when twelve sail of Merchantmen were captured by the French, and taken into one of the Ports of Spain; which Power, 011 a representation from this Country, gave them up. Lord HOOD cruized for a few days in the mouth of the Channel, in order to give the East India and Mediterranean Fleets an oppor- tunity of getting safely into Port.— That impor. tant objeCt is happily effected, and his Lordship has proceeded on the great business of his com- mand. The Mercantile Community are much re- joiced at the safe arrival of the East India and Mediterranean Fleets. It is a subjeCt of sincere satisfaction to every True Briton, for it bring* into this Country a vast influx of wealth. The Faction aCt in the business of Mr. FOX with the same attention to inconsistency that they abserve upon every occasion. They talk of making a demand upon the generosity of the People, 011 behalf of a man. who keeps a Stud at Newmarket, and owes ten thousand pounds to the Master of a Gaming house, at a time when they say the People of this Country are all ruined by the War A few days ago died, at Hopetown Hull, near Edinburgh, a man of the name of ROBERTSON, at the surprizing age of 137.— this modem pa - triarch had always lived in the family of the Lords of that place, whom he served in quality of Inspector of the lead- works four complete generations, besides the time elapsed since the birth of the present possessor. The funeral was celebrated with a decency that does honour to bis noble patron, who has bespoke an elegant Monument, with inscription expressive of the Zeal and fidelity of an old and worthy servant, during the space of one hundred and ten years. A very singular and remarkable accident hap- pened to Mr. Anderson's brother to Dare Devil, in running the third heat at Ascot on Wednes- day :— After the horse had gained the summit of' the hill near the King's Stand, he suddenly faul- tered, and with the shock threw his rider a con- siderable distance, without falling himself.— Upon examining the horse, it was discovered that both his legs were broken, and that he had gal- loped near eighteen yards on the stumps, when he made a dead stop. The accident can be ac- counted for in no other way, than it is supposed the hardness of the ground dislocated the fetlock joint of the off leg, and in running with full speed, the near leg just above that same joint was completely broken— the horse was imme- diately killed— the rider very fortunately escaped unhurt. FRANCE PARIS, JUNE 6. IN the Sitting of the 2d instant, the ConVen- tion decreed the arrest of GENSONNE, VERG- NiAUD, BRISSOT, GAUDET, GORSAS, PETION, SALLES, CAMBON, BARBAROUX, BUZOT, BL- ROTTEAU, RABAUT, LASOURCE, LANJUINAIS, GRANGENEUVE, LESAGE, LOUVET, VALAZE, DOULCET, Ducos, LANTHENAS, DUSSAULX, all the Members of the Committee of Twelve, EONFIEDE and SAINT MARTIN excepted, and the Ministers CLAVIERE and LEBRUN. On the request of MARAT, and several other Deputies, Ducos, DUSSAUIX, and LANTHENAS, were af- terwards excepted. In the Sitting of the Municipality of the 29th ult. MARIE ANTOINETTE demanded the Novel of Gil Blas for the use of her Son. After much difficulty and debate, this requisition was con- sented to. On the 1 st instant, the Commons ordered the arms in the houses of all suspeCted persons to be seized. They also ordered that Seals should be affixed to the Papers of CLAVIERE the Minister; ( who, himself, escaped by leaping from a win- dow)- and that the Ex- Minister ROLAND and his wife should be apprehended. On the ad, Madame ROLAND was apprehend- ed. NATIONAL CONVENTION. SATURDAY, JUNE 1. BARRERE having proposed an Address to the French Nation on the Insurrection of yesterday, VERGNIAUD resisted this measure with all lib efforts. It was, he said, unnecessary ; aud it would be sufficient to send to the Departments the Decree which declares that the Sections of Paris hare merited well of their country. LASOURCE was of the same opinion. " If," said he, " you wish to address a Proclamation tu the French Nation, it ought to have for its basis these three truths: that a most horrid plot had been formed by certain malevolent persons in this Capital; that the Citizens of Paris have defeated these manceuvres ; and that tranquillity is re established. " I therefore," continued LASOURCE, " pro- pose the following Address, alone worthy the wisdom of the Convention : " Frenchmen! Conspirators, disguised as Patriots to mislead the People, sounded the tocsin, and fired the alarm- gun. The Citizens of Paris, worthy of the Republic and of them- selves retreated to their Sections, where they took up arms, and enforced a submission to the I ;.;..! tlv: National Representation. Tran- q. prevails the Convention is vigi- take such measures as will leave Traitors shame, terror and death alone." The Mountain got the better of this Address : and the Proclamation drawn up by BARRERE, in the name of the Convention, to the French People, was adopted. It was extremely long ; but at the same time pretty much to the purport of that of LASOURCE. Want of room obliges tis to omit it here : but we shall give this Pro- clamation on a more favourable opportunity. N Commissioners from the Department des Bouches- du- Rhone stated, that Marseilles was now a prey to all the rage of an insolent Aristocracy. A Tribunal of Blood made the Patriots tremble; and this Tribunal paid no respeCt whatever to the Decree of the Convention, persevering in the exercise of its execrable functions. * EXTRAORDINARY NIGHT SITTING. The tocsin having sounded in several quarters, and the general having been beaten, several De- puties repaired to their Post, and demanded that the Members then present should constitute an Assembly. This was opposed by those on the right side of the Hall, who observed, that such a Sitting not having been pointed out, all the ' Members could not be expected to repair to their stations. LEGENDRE—" When the general is beaten, it is the duty of all the Citizens to be at their Post. Now the Post of the Legislator is at this moment in this recess. Those, therefore, who have not yet repaired hither, will certainly not neglect to do so: and hence I conclude that we ought to constitute an Assembly." A Member demanded, that no important ob- ject should be entered upon. The Convention decreed, that it was about to hold its Sitting. CAMBON, in the name of the Committee of Public Safety, stated, that the new troubles Which had arisen were owing to the Conven- tion not having, in their Sitting of yester- day, determined on the Petition relative to the Decree of Accusation demanded against the twenty- two Members denounced by the Forty- eight Sections of Paris. A Deputation of the Department of Paris was admitted at the Bar, and demanded that attention should be paid to the above Petition. It also demanded, that DUSSAULX, Ducos, FONFREDE, and ISNARD, should be included in the same measure of Public Safety, as being denounced and criminated by the Public Opinion. DUSSAULX thought himself very happy in being associated with the Members who had already been denounced by the forty- eight SeCtions. He deemed it an honour which threw a new eclat on the glory he had acquired, by writing in favour of Liberty for upwards of thirty years. LEGENDRE—" DUSSAUX has ascended this Tribune to declare to you, that his Patriotism is of an ancient date. Patriots are not distin- guished by age. We are all of the same age: we were born to Liberty 0n the 14th of July, and the taking of the Bastile was our baptismal day. The People must declare whether they wish to save Liberty; and is it possible to hope a Re- publican Constitution from Men who, by voting for an Appeal to the People, have sought to light up the torch of Civil War? If all the Patriots of France were assembled, they would all say to you that is not the time to ne- gociate with those who were for the appeal to the People, but that, on the other hand, the latter should be replaced by their Substitutes. I demand, in their name, that these Appellants be obliged to yield their seats to their Substitutes, and that, until their arrival, they be obliged to keep their houses." LAIGNELOT recommended unanimity, more especially as La Lozere, and several other Depart- ments, were announced to be in a state of Insur- rection. He thought, for quietness sake, those who voted for the Appeal should resign. The Insurrection of La Lozere was stated in the following Report, from the Procurator Ge- neral of the Department of Puy- de- Dome : " I am just apprized of a terrible InsurreCtion, in La Lozere. The Insurgents, led by the Ex- Constituent CHARLiER and sixty Priests, have pos- sessed themselves of Marvejols, aud have mur- dered all the Public Functionaries there. They have proceeded from thence to Mende, which is thought to be in their possession. Returning by the route of Saint- Chely, they are now making an attempt on Saint Flour. We have ordered the levy of a thousand men, who will be ready in less than three days. LACROIX announced, that the Executive Council had communicated to the Committee of Public Safety other details on the same sub- ject, but less alarming. MARAT demanded a Decree of Accusation against those who had devoted to public exe- cration the Constituted Authorities. He de- scribed them as the accomplices of DUMOURIER, as having attempted to crush the Mountain, that bulwark of Liberty, & c. Against all these he demanded a Decree of Accusation; and pro- posed, at the next Sitting, to purge the Conven- tion, intimating, that the People ought not to lay down their arms until after this expurgatory act. BARRERE demanded a Dccree, enjoining the Committee of Public Safety to present, within three days, the means which should appear the best calculated to destroy the external and in- ternal Enemies of the Republic. He also wished that the said Committee should, without delay, make a Report respecting the Deputies under accusation.— Ad opted. Tht Lords of the Admiralty have lately con- tracted with the private ship- builders for the im- mediate building of six frigates, of 38 guns each, and twelve - sloops, of sixteen guns ; all of which are to be on an enlarged scale. St. Jean de Luz, one of the Towns seized by the Spaniards in France, is remarkable for having been the residence of LOCKHART, the Republican Ambassador from England, at the time when the French and Spanish Ministers were negociating upon the Frontiers, and CHARLES II. then in exile, was prevented from seeing either, by the menaces of the English Minister directed against them both. To- morrow being the last day of viewing the ORLEANS GALLERY, all the Beauty and Fashion of this vast Metropolis will consequently at- tend. A pocket- book, containing bank- notes to the amount of 1950l. which was lately dropped by aa India- Broker, has been restored, in conse- quence of an advertisement, by a person of good character, who found it in Cheapside. REPORT OF BARRERE, ON THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR SITUATION OF THE REPUBLIC; GIVEN IN THE SITTING OF THE 29TH ULT. AT the moment of the formation of your Committee of General Safety, said he, there was a formidable Foreign War, and « general inter- nal Disorganization, which was ready to preci- pitate the Republic into an abyss ready to over- whelm it. Armies without discipline, without order, without Commanders, without arms, without Field Officers, and led by Counter- Revolutionary Officers, wanted every thing necessary ; delivered up to the most shameful exaCtions 0n the part of those who undertook to furnish it with neces- saries— A Marine, which had no existence but in the Decrees of the Convention; the Arsenals empty, the Ports without defence, the Public Works without activity, the Executive Council without powerj without means, divided, and in- capable of forming plans of defence, or causing them to be executed ; the public spirit cooled, and Counter- Revolutionary movements agitating every part of the Republic, & c. The Executive Council had particularly drawn our attention: we found its Members either incapable, or worn out by Revolu- tionary movements, or careless from political defection. The Interior Department, whose vast and complicated machine surpasses the talents and resources of one man, had weakened the public spirit, and blunted every administration. That of Foreign Affairs, had not in these mo- ments of clanger, either secresy in its operations, nor any of these grand projects which have since been concerted with the Committee of Public Safety, and of which we have reason to expeCt the success. The Department of Justice, impeded rather than promoted the interest of the other Depart- ments ; but the danger of a change made the Committee suspend every alteration that was necessary in it. The Marine Department had no longer any vigour; that of War only presented a chaos of contradictory orders;— a frightful picture of dilapidations, of want and prodigality. Such was the state of France when your Com- mittee of General Safety entered upon the difficult task of obviating every difficulty, of repairing every disorder. Orders have been given and executed with activity ; in an instant more than six hundred thousand soldiers covered our fron- tiers, and no longer presented the mournful SpeCtacle of Conquerors dying with hunger, and exposed, without clothing, to all the inclement of the season. The Recruiting, carried on with Republican Energy, has proved to our Enemies, that the. Counter- Revolutionary movements were only the fruit of intrigue, and the result of the efforts which the Cabinets of Berlin, of Vienna, of Madrid and London, had formed to, divide and weaken us; not one Frenchman has abjured his Country, and all our Armies are perfectly com- plete— those of the Moselle and of the Rhine ad- vance towards Mentx, which is destined to be the Tomb of the numerous Armies of Austria and Prussia. The Army of the Alps begins to be disciplined, and to assume a martial appearance. The news of an approaching Attack upon that Frontier, hath determined the Committee to take every measure to prevent the consequences that the Forces of the Enemy gave cause to appre- hend. Rebellion, that match which seemed to pre- pare in the Department of Mount Blanc an explo- sion favourable to the KiNG of SARDINIA, has been extinguished; and Civism triumphant will op- pose an impenetrable barrier to the hordes that issue out of Turin. The Army of Italy is purged of Agitators, who menaced it with dissolution. A diplomatic rumour announced, that the KING of NAPLES would join himself to the league of Kings, and would make an attack upon the borders of the Var. The Minister for Foreign Affairs has communicated a dispatch, which con- tradicts that report. KELLERMAN takes the command of these two . Armies; and already an extraordinary Courier who precedes him, carries to the General Of- ficers a plan of the Campaign, and particular orders. The Army of the Pyrennees only existed in the Decree which created it ; treachery, which seemed to have infeCted France from one extre- mity to the other, had seized upon this Frontier; but whatever advantage Spain derived from our being totally unprovided for an attack, our Troops form themselves into order, and soon the KING of SFAIN will not be more fortunate than other Kings. The Army 011 the borders had no Field Officers, and the band of Rebels increased daily, and threatened our Liberty, The attack, without vigour, of this Christian Army, allowed the conflagration to rage; but a happy event, more than 60,000 men assem- bled at Tours, and go to surround those Plunder- ers, whose numbers are increased by fanaticism and terror, and who over- run the Country laid waste by these Fanatics. The Army of the North and of Ardennes will soon be disciplined under the Commander whom the Executive Council has appointed: CUSTINE will preserve them from that reverse of fortune with which they are threatened by their new po- sition. Encamped between Cambray and Bou- chain, they have left Valenciennes and Conde to their own defence, and have lost many import- ant communications. If all our strong places imitate the sacrifices" made by Maubeuge, France will not long suffer adverse fortune. That Town hath sworn to set fire to its powder Magazines ; this is the last means of defence which its courage has taken. The Marine was to be created— all our works so that effeCt are in activity. Fleets are getting ready in out Ports, and many cruizers protect our commerce in the Atlantic and Mediterrane- an.— Thousands of sailors repair to our coasts, and are ambitious to rival at sea, their brethren of Spires and Jemappe. Our means of defence present at this moment, upon the whole, forces and measures, which, to assure the safety and glory of the Republic, have only to be properly directed. — Thus an uniform plan is about to regulate our military movements, and determine those points where stationary Annies ought to confine them- selves, to guard the limits of our territory ; and those where may be stationed with advantage, Armies destined to pursue the Enemy even to their fire- sides; but in combining ill our re- sources, both to defend ourselves and vanquish our enemies, the Republic ought not to neglect securing all those Natural Allies, which her poli- tical and commercial situation offers to her. The Partition of Poland . has gained many friends to the French Revolution, being justly alarmed at the neighbouring Partitioning Powers and above all, the famous Decree of the 13th of April, which, in declaring that France will not suffer any one to interfere in her internal Go- vernment, has declared, that she will equally re- speCt the Independence of other States ; this De- cree has caused that of the 19th Nov. to be for- gotten, at which every Government was alarmed. From this Decree, in some degree, may be dated the renewal of our exterior relations. ' Tis since this epoch that Switzerland, where the Royal Coalition endeavoured to raise us up Enemies, satisfied with these just declarations, hath given to our Ambassador the assurance of the conti- nuance of their friendly sentiments for France. ' Tis since this epoch that the DEY of ALGIERS, whom they wished to make forget, his own interest and ours, has received the proof of our friendship and alliance. The SUBLIME PORTE remembers the enterprizes of Russia; the aCtual circumstances bring to her recollection, that she is the Ally of France ; and she will soon give a proof of these sentiments. Already she has given to the Court of Russia, who demanded a passage for her Fleets through the Dardanelles, an evasive an- swer, which will terminate in a negative. Other Allies have shewn, that they will be equally at- tached to our interest as to their own, Du- MOURIER, and his Accomplices, whom they have drove out of their dominions, attest the Justice and Loyalty of our Friends. The second part of the Report exhibits our moral situation. The public opinion, said BARRERE, appears to be divided by three Political Sects which prevail amongst us. The first alarms by its excesses, justice, talents, virtue, renders depraved public virtue, awakes barbarity, and prepares the dissolution of the Social Order the second, sacrifices to its pride every right and every principle, creates slaves and masters, de- grades reason, justice, and humanity, and arms itself with every crime, with every prejudice, surrounded with plots against the Sovereignty of the People, and with homage for Tyranny;— a third, startled at the excesses of the first, alarmed at the menaces and projects of the second, and ready to enter into a composition with it. To these three sources, the Reporter traced all the misfortunes af France) and which, aided by the perfidy of some of its Agents, increased public discord and promoted enmity. In these he found thE cause of the flattering hopes of her / enemies, and of all her troubles; but he shewed at the same time a great majority desiring Li- berty, Equality, a Republic one and indivisible, abjuring equally Federalism and Tyranny, a Mu- nicipal Government, or a Dictator ; and seeking with an aCtive restlessness, a Centre of Union, a Free Constitution, which, placing the People on the Throne, shuts for ever all access to it from the ambitious, extinguishes the tyger of Anarchy, and makes tlie French Nation a Family of Friends and Brothers, united by the love of Liberty, by the interest and necessity of preserv- ing it. BARRERE then caused the whole of the De- claration of Rights to be adopted ; and the Com- mittee of Public Safety was ordered to present the plan of the Constitution, free from articles of mere regulation; and confined to such alone as the Legislative Assemblies cannot intermeddle with. In the Report, BARRerE said, that Marseilles allowed yet to exist the popular Tribunal, of which the Convention had decreed the Abolition. Barbaroux contradicted this assertion, and protested, that on advice being given at Mar- seilles, by theDeputation of the Bouches- du- Rhone, of the Decree of the Assembly, the Tribunal had been dissolved. The last Sentence it pronoun- ced, said he, has punished with the sword the- brothers SAVON, whose hands were reeking with the blood of more than an hundred slaughtered Citizens. Thus shall perish, pursued by eter- nal Justice, the Assassins of the 2d of September. LAW REPORT. COURT OF KING's BENCH, JUNE 13. THE KING V. PERRY. MR. ErskInE, on the part of the Prisoner, Mr. Perry, moved that his Client might be tried at the Assizes, on the Indictment that had been pre- ferred against him for felony. He said he made this motion under very singular circumstances. The facts of this case are these This Indict- ment, which was founded on 3 Henry VII. cap. 3, was preferred against Mr. Perry for the forci- ble abduction of a young Lady from a Boarding- school at Bristol. The lady who kept this Boarding- school was the Prosecutrix of the In- dictment. By the above- mentioned Statute it is enaCtcd, that if any person shall, for lucrc, take any wo- man, being maid, widow, or wife, and having substance either in goods or lands, or being heir apparent' to her ancestors, contrary to her will, and afterwards she be married to such misdoer, or by his consent to another, or defiled, such per- son, his Procurers and Abettors, and such as knowingly receive such women, shall be deemed principal felons. The learned Counsel said he very well knew that the feelings of mankind were very generally prejudiced against such a case, and that the cir- cumstances ought to be very peculiar to entitle - the party to any indulgence. He thought the affidavits 0n which he grounded this application, were not only sufficiently strong to induce the Court to grant his motion, but he conceived they would have been sufficient to have led the Court to have bailed his Client. But he did not make any such application : If their Lordships should think themselves unable, or if they should be unwilling to grant his motion, he said the necessary consequence would be, that the Defendant, who was now in prison, must continue in prison till the Sessions at Bristol, where the indictment was found. All that the Defendant wanted, was a fair, speedy, and im- partial trial. There was nO danger but that Complete justice would be done at the Assizes before one of their Lordships, and the trial in that case would Come on sooner than it could do if the Defendant was tried at the Sessions, which was the reason of the Defendant's present application to their Lordships. The Defendant, in his affidavit, stated, that he- took this young Lady from school by her own consent; that the mother of the young Lady immediately inquired after them, and that by her ( the mother's) express desire, they were publicly married, and that they were now liv- ing together. The young Lady, in her affidavit, stated, that she went from the boarding- school by her own free consent, and without any violence on the part of her husband ; that she had one child by her husband ; that she is now pregnant, and liv- ing with him in prison, and that her mother was consenting to the match, and had lived some time with them. The learned Counsel said he had also the affi- davits 6f several other persons, which were ex- tremely strong to the same point. To shew that the Court had authority to grant his Motion, he cited Hales's Pleas of tho- Crown, chap. 6. He said the principle upon which he made this application to the Court was, that this indictment was found at the Sessions for Bristol, and he was not seeking to withdraw it from that Court, but only that it might be tried at the next Assizes to be held for the County, instead of being tried at the Sessions, which took place at a later period. He hoped, under these circumstances, that their Lordships would grant him a Rule to shew cause. Lord KENYOn said, he did not chuse then to make any remarks on the facts of the Case, al- though his Lordship conceived they were preg- nant with observations. He thought Mr. Er- sKiNE should take nothing by his Motion ; and the rest of the Court were of the same opinion. GENERAL DUMOURIER TO THE FRENCH NATION. " COUNTRYMEN, April 24, 1793. " When I addressed to you my two first Declarations, I was at the head of an Army, with which I hoped to deliver my Country from the most oppressive yoke and criminal anarchy. A Proclamation of the PRINCE of SAXE- COBOURG assured me his neutrality during my expedition against your Tyrants ; and while I accepted of his assistance, he promised to do nothing but to restore Peace and Order 10 my Country, without permitting any conquest, or the dismemberment of any part of the French Empire. " A second Proclamation by that General obliged the to quit his Army, after having stipulated the most honourable conditions for my Companions in Arms ; and I am now re- duced to deplore my Country, being unwilling to employ my talents to its injury. It is to the delusion of the Army, it is to the disorganiz- ing system of the National Convention, that I have to attribute this unfortunate change of circumstances. " Finding myself incapable of doing an in- jury to my Country, I shall in future employ no other weapon than my pen to combat the Jacobins and the Anarchists. They wish to bring about my destruction beneath their thousands of poignards: I shall crush them with the Club of Public Opinion. Having sought a refuge among a generous People who esteem Virtue, and who deign to watch over my life, I hope to preserve my physical existence for a sufficient period to bring about their moral destruction.— This is the highest service I can render my Nation, the bulk of which I know to be wearied with the metaphysical exaggerations of' some, tbe hideous plots of others, and the atrocious crimes of all.— Their last Decree against me, which invites all the Emigrants to kill me, with the promise of a reward of a hundred thousand crowns, and of being restored to their property and to their rank in that fe- rocious society, shews a refinement i • wicked- ness which conveys a sang- froid even superior to their phrenzy ; but, with the exception of the House of BourBON, which would gain nothing by my assassination, this measure gives to the Law of the Tyrants the stamp of absurdity which serves to unveil them. They have the baseness to imagine that they can find Assassins, amongst the Emigrants, without reflecting that the men who could sacrifice their lives to the delicacy of their prejudices are incapable of ever sullying them with a crime. " Since the tragical Death of Louis the Six- teenth, the National Covention has known n0 bounds. It has arrogated to itself the Aristocracy of crimes, the only one which now exists in France. " The prudent men, distinguished by the name of the Moderates, a title which is become a re- proach, are obliged, upon pain of being poignaid- ed, to unite with the Mountain. " It is thus that these Monsters have named the part of the Convention in which all the Agitators take their seats : it is the focus of crimes of every description. ' i. As well as the others, these Moderates cry out " Live the Republic," and kill the Social Body, by sanctioning Decrees at once absurd and criminal. " With respeCt to the Constitution so long looked for, the Legislators have taken good care hitherto to avoid applying themselves to that labour. They have, indeed, thrown out to the Public an undigested plan, to make the People fancy they were so employed; but this plan was to have been submitted to the Primary Assem- blies. By every possible pretext they have kept off these Assemblies, 011 many accounts de- manded by the sound and suffering part of the Convention, who hoped to employ them to de- liver themselves from the bondage of MARAT and his Associates. In the mean time every thing is despotically managed. " Mv Proclamations have altered this progress, and have snatched from these Tyrants their Iron Sceptre. When I oppose to them a Constitu- tion accepted with enthusiasm by the whole Na- tion, whose happiness and glory it would have constituted, they hasten to decree the articles of a Republican Constitution. They divest the People of that Sovereignty of which they speak so much; and, without having given them any new powers, without waiting the approbation of the Departments to the plan they have pre- sented, they take upon them, by way of perpe- tuating their power, to bestow on the trembling Nation irrevocable Laws. A Government exer- cised by the blows of the poignard, is to be maintained by a Constitution fabricated by strokes of the hatchet. " Instead of rallying the whole Nation under the mild and just Laws framed by their predecessors, and consented to by the Sovereign People, they present to Europe the impure production of this Hydra of Seven Hundred Heads which de- populates and devastates France. By the scum of the Nation, the Nation is to be represented ; and with this Areopagus of Madmen, of Villains, and of weak and ignorant Men, the Nations are to treat. In their criminal hands are to be deposited the destinies of my unhappy Country and of Europe ! No — their maddened projeCts will fall on their own guilty heads -. they will not have time to complete their criminal pro- jects. Already struck with blindness, the fore- runner of their fall, all, that they do tends to their own destruction. " Money is a sinew of War. Such Despots ought to have a SULLy worthy of themselves. The Minister camBon he who has rendered Frenchmen odious to the surrounding Nations, by inundating them with his plundering De- crees, with which he unquestionably hoped to make up the deficiency resulting from his per- plexed Administration, will take care to reply to what I am about to advance, ' and will deve- lope to the Nation the mysteries of his System of Finance." He then takes a review of the expences and deficiencies of the Nation since the commence, merit of the Republic— He accounts for a great part of the enormous expenditure, by develop- ing what has been long understood— the im- mense bands of Ruffians kept in pay by them, not only in Paris and in France, but all over Europe, for the purpose of overturning every settled and existing Government. He next takes a review of the proceedings of the Convention from the 30th ot March to the 16th April, which , are still sufficiently fresh in every one's recolleCtion to need recapitulation. He adverts to the Murder of Louis XVI.; unfolds his own intentions in his visit to Paris at that junCture; and concludes with an appeal to the People against the Convention, calling upon Frenchmen to rouse and free themselves from the dreadful Tyranny by which they are oppressed.] SPORTING INTELLIGENCE.

EAST INDIES, By Letters received from His Majesty's ship Hyaena, of 24 guns, Capt. HARgOOD, dated off Port Royal in Jamaica, 011 the 14th of April last, it appears, that immediately 011 the receipt of news of War having commenced between this Country and France, they were dispatched on a cruize to intercept and' make reprisals of all French vessels they might meet with ; that they ran down as far as the Island of St. Domingo, without any success, when a favourable oppor- tunity offering, they ran in under one of the Forts 0n that Island, and cut out a large schooner and a sloop ; unfortunately for them they were both in ballast— They again proceeded 011 their cruize, and soon after captured two large schooners, laden with flour, and a large brig laden with coffee and sugar, with which they proceeded to Port Royal, and were arrived off that Port the day of the above date. The Anniversary of the King's Birth- day was observed at Durham with ringing of bells, & c. At noon the West York Militia, commanded by his Grace the Duke of NORFOLK, fired three ex- cellent vollies in honour of the day. The men afterwards dined, and had each a quart of ale, at the expence of the Officers. On Tuesday se'nnight, a very large and re- spectable Meeting of Catholic Clergy was held at the Falcon Inn, in York, when many Consti- tutional Toasts were drank, and " God save the King" repeatedly sung, in testimony of their loyalty to the present established system of the Government of this happy Country. On Tuesday night at eleven o'clock, Richard Richards, Esq. of Lincoln's- Inn, was robbed 011 Hounslow- Heath, of a gold watch, gold chain, and seal, a guinea and a half, some silver, and a quantity of linen. Yesterday, about two o'clock, as Mr. Cart- wright, of Grosvenor- place, accompanied by his servant, was riding 0n horseback over Bagshot- Heath, they were stopped by two highwaymen, who took from Mr. C. a gold watch, valued at eighty guineas; thirty guineas in gold, and sixty gold ducats, and from the servant a silver watch. A melancholy accident happened in Lancaster River, 0n Sunday morning, the id instant. A boat, with sails, intending for Sunderland, hav- ing on board three men, a woman, and a boy about 14 years of age, was overset a little below the New Quay, by a squall of wind, filled, and went to the bottom almost instantaneously. Two ofthe men were brothers, and the woman wife of one of them. One of them could swim, and for some time kept his brother and wife from sinking : but finding his strength fail, he told them they must let him go, 0r all must perish. his brother said, God bless thee; quitted his hold, and immediately he and his wife sunk, in each others arms, aud were found near the boat on the ebbing out of the tide, as was also the boy. The other two with difficulty reached the shore, and were saved. On Tuesday a respite, during His Majesty's pleasure, was sent down from the Secretary of State's office to Newgate, for William Lavender, who was capitally convicted at the Old Bailey Sessions, for a rape. BOMBAY GAZETTE, JAN. 9. . Letters from. Cochin, mention the arrival, of the Dutch Commission rs from Batavia, at that place; - and that a report prevailed, that there was a probability of an exchange between the English and Dutch, Negapatam for Cochin. COUNTRY NEWS. CHESTER, JUNE 11. The Anniversary of His Majesty's Birth- day was observed in this City on Tuesday with the usual festivity. At noon a salute was fired by the Garrison at the Castle; and the day con- cluded with every demonstration of loyalty aud attachment. The Royal Cheshire Militia embarked on Thursday last at Hull for Barton, from whence they were to proceed to Lincoln. Wednesday died Thomas White, M. D. of Manchester. This Gentleman's death was occa- sioned by a melancholy accident. In riding home on Sunday evening, his horse fell, and he was thrown with such force 011 his head, as to receive a blow which terminated his existence. Wednesday se'nnight died Thomas Payne, of Pentreheylin, near Llanymynech, Esq. His death was occasioned by a fall off his horse, which fraCtured his skull, 0n his road home from Llany- mynech fair. Saturday se'nnight died at Litchfield, in the 14th year of his age, the youngest Son of Mr. Morgan, Bookseller, of that place, who was acci- dentally shot in the shoulder, and the whole con- tents of the piece lodged near to his breast, a fortnight preceding, by a young man who was shooting rats. A tree was felled last week at Morley, in this County, that produced upwards of a thousand measurable feet of oak timber. Its girth was fourteen yards; and one branch contained 200 ' feet. Its existence can be traced back for 8oo years, and it is supposed to be the largest tree in England ; as a proof of it, the trunk has been used some years for housing cattle. It would hold two stirks conveniently. SHIP NEWS. PLYMOUTH, JUNe 12.
